I am just wondering, about this whole Geothermal thing

Capt. John
As I understand it, the Geothermal drillers have finally got all their eggs lined up, and started this past weekend the 16th or 17th. without any fanfare.

It would have been nice, if they had told us about this historical event, so that at least the Press and Radio could have been there to witness/cover the first drill entering the ground in our islands quest to finally do away with using fossil fuel, and finally (especially after all these years of much talk) get a cheaper green energy, so that the local inhabitants can keep a little of their hard earned cash in their pockets. Instead of giving it to the Oil Company!

Now all that remains to be seen is:-
How much hot fluid is there to potentially develop at least 5 megawatt plant, and the possibility future expansion to generate in excess of 100 to 200 Mega watts of power?

What type of plant will be deployed, either Steam or Binary system?

Who will own this Geothermal Power System?

I SAY THAT IT MUST BE OWNED SOLELY BY THE GOVERNMENT OF MONTSERRAT!

How was the monies given by Britain/DFID split up, as the total monies to actually drill, and the amount to prepare the two drill sites, from the original figure, does NOT quite add up?

Why are our leaders still adamant to borrow more monies, to buy a large 1.5 Megawatt fossil fuelled engine, when we know well, that it will NOT be able to handle the very same load, if there was a catastrophic problem at the geothermal plant, and was shut do down?

Why was Britain so eager to give them those monies for a fossil fuelled plant, knowing well that they were going to fund Geothermal development?

How much did it cost to truck all that fill from Salem Park, to cover the Fox’s Bay Road, and was that money used, left over from the total amount allotted to the drilling/implementing/testing of Geothermal on Montserrat?

Will the Government be buying a Rescue Vessel, to be kept at Fox’s Bay in the event of an ‘Eruption’?

How much did it cost to dredge out the Plymouth Town pier, to allow the Geothermal ship to come along side?

Where was this dredged material placed on shore?

Is anyone interested in how these monies are spent?

I say this because the monies spent on building up the Fox’s Bay road and dredging at the Warf, could have easily purchased at least a 3 to 5 Mega Watt Binary modules Plant!

I AM JUST WONDERING!!!??? And asking for answers, please.
